“I have given enough. I have given beauty”

Actor turned activist, Rose McGowan, has cancelled upcoming public appearances to promote her new book, Brave, following on from what she’s described as a verbal assault, by a trans activist.

The former Charmed actor then went on to call out her publicists, managers and the audience of the event, for being complicit.

She then called upon bookseller Barnes and Noble to apologise for the “assault”.

Upset at the bookstore

Earlier this week, a transgender activist, passionately told McGowan, “Trans women are dying, and you said that we, as trans women, are not like regular women.

“We get raped more often. We go through domestic violence more often.

“There was a trans woman killed here a few blocks [away]. I have been followed home.”

McGowan responded civilly at first saying, “So have I. So have I. So have I. We’re the same. My point was: we are the same,

“There’s an entire show called ID channel, a network, dedicated 24 hours a day to women getting abused, murdered, sexualised and violated, and you are too, sister.

“It’s the same.”

However, when the activist responded that McGowan had done “nothing for” trans women and labelled as a cis white feminist, McGowan lost her cool.

Cancellation

Taking to Twitter, McGowan, 44, wrote, “I am canceling upcoming public appearances because I have given enough. I have given beauty, in return I was VERBALLY ASSAULTED for two full minutes by an actor paid to verbally assault a woman who has been terrorized by your system. And no ONE in that room did anything

“And everyone from my publicists, t assistants, managers and every person sitting in their chairs frozen by their weakness, a weakness called COMPLICITY. The truth is you all failed me. Again. And again. And again.

“I would like an apology from the manager of the Union Square and all security people, and the audience, who did nothing and let the paid verbal assault of an assaulted woman happen. Cool?”
